There was once a great calm,
As the world would sing the Psalm,
When I thought they knew it all,
But it was my destiny to fall.
I heard tales of the true greats,
The ones who suffered dire straits,
The Kings who rose to retake their land,
The peasants who suffered at greeds hand.
I thought chivalry was the law,
I would smile in distant awe,
But tales only tell half the truth,
Which I knew nothing about in my youth.
I would see the best in the world,
My eyes were wide and my hair was curled,
I didn’t see the monsters lurking in the wild,
Until the first night that I was defiled.
I thought it would be a one-off thing,
But the real monster had yet to take his swing,
He made sure no one would care,
When he tortured me in his lair.
